Verse of the Day

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! — Philippians 2:5-8

February 2017

As the year began with prayer and praise, so many continue to pray in hope & expectation – here at Christ Church; at the fortnightly Monday 2.15 prayer group; at the monthly Tonbridge Prayer Initiative (Fri 7pm -midnight); at the joint TACTEG and TACT Tonbridge All Churches Together meetings – for the right person to fill the vacancy here at Christ Church URC Tonbridge. Keep praying!

January 2017 – Christ Church wishes everyone a Happy New Year

Tonbridge Festival 1-10th July 2016

This year we are taking part in the Festival by hosting a window display – part of a townwide book trail.

Take a look at our balcony window and see what book it is representing.

As a clue it is not the bible with Adam, an apple and the serpent!

Pop down to our cafe 10-1pm Monday – Saturday  (free drinks after the Sunday service!)

Any ideas how we could get more involved next year?

 

 

Tonbridge Carnival – Sunday 19th June 2016

Bands and other activities start up at the Castle at 11.30, but the main parade will take place from our end of the High Street at 12.15.    It will move up the High Street and into the Castle grounds.

Not only is our church as great vantage point, but it is an opportunity to open up our foyer – so volunteers to serve drinks, play music or support other activities would be great.  Speak to Sharon

Don’t forget all this will affect parking in the car park – so turn up early – or walk if possible. Sometimes the exits to the car parks are closed until 12.30 so keep an eye on the noticeboards in the week leading up to the event.
